An 'ultimate experience' at Meridien

A royal treat for the festive season.

Le Royal Meridien Bahrain has lined up an "Ultimate Experience" for guests during the forthcoming festive season.

Starting with Ramadan and Eid, the hotel says it has lined up a "celebration for every occasion".

"We want to make this season the most enjoyable moments of the year starting with Ramadan and Eid at the traditional Al Khayma Arabic tent," said a Le Royal Meridien spokesperson.

This year National Day may fall on the same day as the first day of Eid Al Fitr and the hotel has planned special events at the Al Khayma with International musicians flown from Egypt to ensure an unforgettable occasion.

Special programmes with delicious menus have also been planned for Christmas, Boxing Day and the New Year, said the spokesperson.

The Al Khayma tent, which was very successful last year, will be a journey into a real Arabic Tale, with traditional Arabic carpets and lighting, offering a lavish Arabic buffet for Iftar, music, games and shisha corners. Children under 12 years of age will eat at half price.

The tent will be open from the first day of Ramadan until Eid.

The National Day celebration at Al Khayma will include a special show with Bahraini singers and a national band in the evening or alternatively, families could book the private island for a night of fun and enjoyment.

A special show with a Bahraini singer, local band and belly dancer and a choice of set menus has been lined up for all three days of Eid Al Fitr holiday.

The Christmas-New Year period will also offer a whirl of activity with themed lunches and dinners to end of the year parties promising a royal treat.
